I have had the pleasure of being Friends with David Windsor since early childhood.  I have always known Dave to have a passion for Golf and as his career progressed, he spent a lot of time and effort trying to help people with certain physical and mental challenges to embrace the game.  Eight years ago, Dave took over the Adaptive Golf Academy located in Sarasota/Bradenton, Florida.  Since that time, the program expanded to Tampa and wounded veterans from the VA Hospital participate every Friday morning.  Current statistics indicate that an average of 22 veterans take their own lives each day.  This program gives the opportunity to get those veterans who would normally stay inside and get them on the golf course no matter what their injury may be.  Amputees, paralyzed veterans as well as those suffering from PTSD have participated and many now look forward to their Friday morning Golf game.  In order to serve the large veteran Community in North Pinellas and Western Pasco County, and two outpatient VA medical centers, I have been working with Crescent Oaks Golf Course and the Adaptive Golf academy to bring the program to yet another location in Florida.  Adaptive Golf Tarpon Springs will be located at Crescent Oaks Golf Course and is slated to kick off late January.  In the meanwhile, it is necessary to raise funds to purchase specialized golf carts and equipment to maximize the range of injuries which can be accommodated.  The attached documents explain the program in more detail and perhaps the most significant fact about this charity is that nobody receives a salary or administrative cost from the funding.  What is raised locally, will stay locally.
